T-Spray Green Tea Review

T-Spray Green Tea Review

T-Spray Cosmetic Teeth & Oral Spray – Say No To Stains, Cavities, Bacteria & Gum Disease, Sensitive Teeth And Bad Breath

By: Toothfilm

This is definitely an interesting item. It is used by doing one good spray into the mouth and swirling the mixture around the teeth and gums with your tongue. The t-spray delivers a decent burst of spray when pressed down on, which allows for even adult mouths to be fully coated. It does say 2 and up but I have only tested this on myself and my husband.

T-Spray Green Tea Review

The flavor that I chose was green tea. There are two other flavors, cool mint and cranberry. I normally would have chosen the cool mint, but I went out on a limb and got the green tea. While I certainly think if I were to buy this again, I would go with the cool mint, I have to say the green tea was not what I was expecting. I would not recommend this in conjunction with anything that might make your burp (like soda pop), but it does well at helping ease my bad breath and I feel like my mouth does have a more clean feeling after using it. This did tackle lasagna the other day, and while it did not completely cover it up with one spray, it did diminish the bad breath quite a bit.

Overall, I definitely would recommend this, but I would say stick with the cool mint unless you’re daring. I do like the green tea, but I think next time I’ll choose the safer route and go cool mint.

Beardeur Beard Oil Review

Beardeur Beard Oil Review

.

Handcrafted Premium Beard Oil for Men

By: Beardeur

Sold By: MakeMeHappy

This is a really powerful little beard oil by Beardeur. The bottle may be on the small side for beard oil bottles, but I feel that my husband has to use less of this beard oil than others that he has tried. A  few little drops of this and it will coat his entire beard. One dropper full is complete overkill, at least for his beard, which is thick, curly, and a few inches long. Or I should say, it was. I was not able to snap a picture or a video of his beard in all its glory, it has recently got wacked due to it becoming warmer.

Beardeur Beard Oil Review

The box itself is pretty elegant. It has the label Beardeur proudly proclaimed on practically every side. It houses the beard oil well, for it arrived safe and sound (with a ton of packaging around it as well).

Beardeur Beard Oil Review

Overall, I definitely think this is a nice beard oil. It does say it is unscented, and it is not, it has a very strong and pure scent to it. There is nothing to make it scented other than the ingredients necessary to make the beard oil.

I would recommend this beard oil, a little goes a long way with this beard oil, and it has worked really well for my husband’s wild beard.

Massage Ball & DVD by DanceCrazy Review

Massage Ball & DVD by Dance Crazy Review

.
.

DanceCrazy Deep Tissue Trilgger Point Muscle and Massge Premium Roller Ball

SalsaCrazy, Inc.

In my opinion, the massage ball is the best part out of this set. The ball is purchased separately from the DVD, and quite frankly it’s all that you need. The ball itself is incased in a hard plastic with a rubberized grip around the middle for easy grasping. The ball has a shiny blue tint to it, with swirls in the ball to give it a unique look.

Using the ball is pretty simple. Just use it where it hurts, and rub. It is a lot easier on the fingers and hands using this to give a massage, and it digs deeper than just thumbs can do.

You can check out this on Amazon HERE.

DanceCrazy Muscle Massager Roller Ball DVD – Instructional Massage Rolling Ball

SalsaCrazy, Inc.

The DVD I was not too impressed with. It did have some useful stretches and tips that I think are nice, but honestly I could have winged using the massage ball and gotten the same effect. If you like having someone else walk you through the correct technique, this is a decent DVD, and it is slow enough that someone can follow along while using the ball, but fast enough that it is not boring.

You can check out this on Amazon HERE.

Thoughts Overall

Overall, I definitely would recommend the massage ball, it has been really nice to use, both on myself and having another use on me. It digs in deeper than my fingers can and does not cause strain on my hands. The DVD I would recommend only for those who want step by step instructions on how to use the massage ball, but if you have the general idea of massages then you should be fine without it.

30 in 30 Top Notch Combo Review

Top Notch 30 in 30 Combo Review

.

I really recommend the Top Notch 30 in 30 if you are wanting a meal replacement that is quick and easy, and even tastes good. I love the idea of having individual packets. I have gotten several different protein shakes to try in the past, and I felt like I was making myself adult formula. I scoop it out into the desired amount of liquid, just like you do baby formula. This way, I just open the packet, add it to the desired amount, and shake it in my tumbler. There is no room for error with the correct amount of powder. The taste is really good too, which I didn’t think I would ever be able to say about a protein shake. I thought they were all “grin and bear it,” because there were several I couldn’t even finish due to their taste. I have been replacing my breakfast with this, and I have noticed that it really does fill me up (I just have to wait half an hour before I feel “full”). Once I get past that half hour I don’t have a huge urge to eat until lunch time. I love the simplicity of this shake, it is great for on the go people. I love both flavors. I like that I can alternate between the two flavors, which allows me to have a vanilla breakfast and a chocolate lunch, which has helped cut down on time, and it also has helped me get a consistent (and healthier than before) diet. I definitely recommend this, it has been so yummy and it is incredibly filling.

Below is the packaging for the vanilla ice cream packets.

Frosted Roller Bottles 2PM Essentials Review

.

I was really happy upon receiving the frosted cobalt blue roller bottles. They were solid and appear to be a thick and sturdy glass. The caps have a sophisticated air to them. The roller balls actually come in a separate bag so you don’t have to worry about popping them out to fill up the roller bottle the first time.

Something I like to do with roller bottles, especially the frosted ones like the cobalt blue rollers that I received, is to put an essential oil or two in it (only a few drops) and fill it with a carrier oil such as coconut or almond oil after. That makes a mighty nice chapstick. The carrier oil hydrates the lips while the essential oil gives it a flavor and scent. You want to be careful with not using too much essential oil though, a little goes a long way.

After filling the bottles, just pop the roller on. Having a metal ball such as the one inside these frosted blue cobalt roller bottles are perfect for essential oils. Essential oils are known for eating through plastic, the metal balls last a lot longer time.

Overall I have been really pleased with these, they have been perfect for me to make my own, on-the-go, perfectly custom essential oil lip gloss / chapstick. My lips are hydrated and I have a stylish way to make them that way.

Brisk Bars Review

Brisk Bars Review

.

My first bite of a Brisk Bars, I definitely felt the energy practically zing through me. It certainly was a taste I was not expecting in the slightest. The taste alone got me up and running to the refrigerator, to get a glass of milk. These are pretty bitter little bars, but they are effective. The bars themselves are actually two “doses,” I only eat half of one at a time and feel like I’m bursting with energy. I will admit, after that first bite, the shock factor was not there, and it was actually pleasant to eat. Definitely not what I am used to eating, but I did not feel like I needed to run to the refrigerator to get a glass of milk.

Brisk Bars Review

The pack that I got, a 4 pack, has lasted me quite a while. I feel like I only need one a day, and only on days that I truly need a pick me up (or nights really). I will caution eating this if you are wanting to sleep any time in the near future after ingesting this, if you are anything like me you will not be able to sleep a wink for quite a while after munching on it.

Brisk Bars Review

Even staying up late with a toddler teething, this has helped me to power through anything that I set my mind to. I definitely recommend this, it has been an interesting experience to be sure, and it definitely gives me energy. Just be prepared for a very bitter taste dancing across your tongue that first bite, to put a spin on an old saying “the first bite is the worst.”

Detox Colon Total Body Cleanse

Detox colon review

.

I love that the ingredients are clearly labeled. Some pills don’t do that, but I don’t have to worry about trying to detox my body when I can clearly see all ingredients that are included in the pill and see what it may effect my body by including it into the mix. All the ingredients though are easy to read and understand exactly what they are. I do think I did notice a difference while using this, and it was easy enough to test out, only needing 1-2 pills a day. So depending on how you were to take this, it would either be a 1-2 month supply of pills meant to help detox the body.

HealthyWiser pH Test Strips Review

HealthyWiser pH strips review

.

These test strips are quite easy to use. You just spit into a spoon, dip the HealthyWiser pH test strip in the saliva, wait 15 seconds and then match it up to the closest color combo. You can see this in my demo below, where I test my husband’s spit, my own spit, and a glass of water.

I will say, the container was a little bit difficult to open at first, but with some wiggling it did open. Be careful when opening to not send the HealthyWiser pH test strips flying everywhere.

When you’re done with the strips, you can just throw them away. There are so many, so you can get a really accurate reading of your pH throughout the day for a long period of time. It is recommended to do this at least 2 hours after a meal however.

You can check out this on Amazon HERE.

Simply Earth Lemon

Simply Earth Lemon essential oil

.

The Simply Earth Lemon essential oil smells amazing. If you want a clean scent to your house, I would suggest diffusing this for an hour or two. This almost smells like a lemon head, which I never would have thought an essential oil would smell like a piece of candy before I sniffed a lemon essential oil for the first time. The Simply Earth Lemon essential oil is no different. It very much reminds me of a piece of candy if I waft the scent from the bottle to my nose.

However, when you diffuse this, it at least to me smells more like cleaner, which is a scent that brings forth strong images in my mind of a house sparkling with exuberant cleanness. I actually got to test this out really well this past week, I left something in the oven a bit too long and it was very smoky, and well, stinky. When I diffused the Simply Earth Lemon essential oil, not only did the smell go away a lot quicker than if I just opened the windows, but the entire house smelled lemony fresh.

Lemon essential oil is one of those oils you want to limit diffusing in excess however, because too much exposure to lemon essential oil, like Simply Earth Lemon essential oil, can cause a sensitivity to the sun. I haven’t noticed this, but I do want to caution. I don’t diffuse this on a regular basis for that exact reason.

Overall, I’ve been pretty pleased with this Simply Earth Lemon essential oil, and I think that it works well in my house, especially when I leave something in the oven too long and make my entire house stink…

Simply Earth Peppermint

Simply Earth Peppermint Essential Oil

.

I love the smell of Simply Earth Peppermint essential oil. It is a pretty heady scent. It’s perfect for making one think of the holidays and winter months, but it also is a great oil to clear the nose out if you’re having a hard time breathing.

When diffusing, all you need to get the air smelling nice and wintery is 2-3 drops max. Any more and you will be smelling peppermint (or at least thinking you smell peppermint) for quite a while after it is done diffusing.

Something a little different, I like to diffuse peppermint oil when I’m taking a bath sometimes. And by diffuse, I mean actually putting the peppermint into the bath water. Be careful when doing this. I do MAX two drops when doing this. When paired with hot water, you would not believe how quickly your nasal passages open up. If you feel a burn from something other than the heat of your water (I do like it nice and toasty), you just put carrier oil wherever you feel the pain. I haven’t ran into this issue, but I know that others have. Just cautionary, you don’t want to put too much essential oil into your bath water, it can lead to some pretty bad things. You know the saying, too much of a good thing? It applies to this.

I’m really pleased with this essential oil, and it has been added to my arsenal of oils that I use every single day. I would recommend this, it is such a pleasure to diffuse this Simply Earth peppermint oil into the air.
